Raed A Abd-Alhameed is Professor of Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Engineering at the University of Bradford, UK. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Basrah University, in 1982 and 1985 respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Bradford, UK, in 1997, all in electrical engineering. He has long years research experience over 25 years in the areas of Radio Frequency, Communications systems, Signal processing, antennas and electromagnetic computational techniques, and has published over 800 academic journal and conference papers; in addition he is co-authors of eight books and several book chapters. He is the senior academic responsible for electromagnetics research in the communications research group, in which a new antenna design configurations and computational techniques have been developed including several patents were considered and filed. Jointly with Dr James M Noras and Prof Excell, he has developed the principle of the hybrid method for electromagnetic field computation, which is able to combine the most appropriate method for differing regions of a problem (e.g. the human head and a mobile telephone). This method is recognised as being a leading area of research in Bioelectromagnetic field computation. He also investigates the reduction of the size of antennas for personal mobile communications. The development of this kind of antenna is under active investigation (seven patent applications submitted). He has also developed the mathematical tools needed for the simulation of non-linear circuits, including energy-storing devices. Moreover, He has written three different programs for electromagnetic scattering problems (Wire Antenna design; Dielectrically-loaded antennas and Microstrip Wire antennas) and one code for analysis of nonlinear circuits using Volterra series. Interest has been shown by publishing houses in finding ways of disseminating this work. In addition, the expertise developed in this research area, in particular the highly realistic analysis of antenna design process in the presence of large multi-layer scatterers, using the Bradford-developed hybrid modelling techniques (MoM, FEM, FDTD, FDFD and subgridding FDTD methods), can significantly benefit the proposed research projects. At the present he is the leader of the Communications systems, Antennas, Propagation and Computational Electromagnetics research group and head of Radio Frequency and Electromagnetics Research in the School of Biomedical and Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Informatics, Bradford University, UK. Professor Abd-Alhameed is a principal investigator for several funded applications to EPSRCs and the leader of several successful knowledge Transfer Programmes, such as with Arris (previously known as Pace plc), Yorkshire Water plc, Harvard Engineering plc, IETG Ltd., Seven Technologies Group, Emkay Ltd., and Two World Ltd. He has also been a co-investigator in several funded research projects including: 1) Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA), Research and Innovation staff exchange (RISE), Call: H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019, 2) H2020 MARIE Skªodowska-CURIE ACTIONS: Innovative Training Networks Secure Network Coding for Next Generation Mobile Small Cells 5G-US; 3) Nonlinear and demodulation mechanisms in biological tissue (Dept. of Health, Mobile Telecommunications & Health Research Programme; and 4) Assessment of the Potential Direct Effects of Cellular Phones on the Nervous System (EU: collaboration with six other major research organizations across Europe). He has awarded Certificate of Excellence with grade Outstanding on June 2014, for the knowledge Transfer Partnerships with 7technologies Company for the period April 2012-March 2014, Certificate No. KTP008734; he was also awarded the business Innovation Award for his successful KTP with Pace plc on the design and implementation of MIMO antenna systems. He is the chair of several successful workshops on Energy Efficient and Reconfigurable Transceivers (EERT): Approach towards Energy Conservation and CO2 Reduction that addresses the biggest challenges for the future wireless systems. He is also invited as keynote speaker for several International conferences such as, ICST, ITA, ICICT, IMDC and EPC; in addition to chair many research sessions. He is also appointed as guest editor for the IET Science, Measurements and Technology Journal since 2009.Professor Abd-Alhameed is also a research visitor for Wrexham University, Wales since Sept 2009 covering the wireless and communications research areas. He is also appointed as Adjunct Professor at the college of Electronic Engineering at Ninevah University, Mosel, Iraq since 2019 and Department of Information and Communication Engineering, Basrah University College of Science and Technology, Basra 61004, Iraq since 2020. His current research interests include hybrid electromagnetic computational techniques, EMC, antenna design, low SAR antennas for mobile handset, bioelectromagnetics, RF mixers, active antennas, beam steering antennas, MIMO antennas, Energy efficient Power Amplifiers, RF predistorter design including biological cell modelling for breast cancer applications. He is the Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Fellow of Higher Education Academy and a Chartered Engineer.
